Fob James IV is a trial attorney specializing in catastrophic personal injury and fraud cases.
After working for a large regional firm for several years where he obtained awards for both individual and corporate clients, Fob found that his passion was fighting for individuals who have been seriously injured or wronged by others.
Fob says “one difference representing families instead of corporations is that the relative stakes are much higher. $100,000.00 for a family may be the difference in putting food on the table; paying bills, or getting the health care one needs.
There is no greater satisfaction than forcing a corporation through hard-fought litigation to treat the client like a human being rather than a statistic.
The responsibility that comes with representing individuals is real and important but I wouldn’t trade it for anything—representing individuals is what I want to do the rest of my life.”
Fob has seen firsthand how big corporations and insurance companies stack the deck against people through their money, influence, and an endless supply of attorneys and lobbyists.
Fob believes that the jury is the great equalizer to the power and influence that large corporations have in society. Fob says that “for this reason, our firm does not accept every case that comes in the door.
We will not take your case unless we are willing to take it to trial.
While we cannot promise you a specific result or that you’ll be awarded a certain amount of money, what we can promise you is that we will fight all the way to the end if that’s what is necessary to level the playing field.”
In addition to personal injury, Fob has extensive experience litigating fraud, civil theft, shareholder oppression, squeeze-outs, and business disputes. Fob also handles securities fraud cases and has tried multiple FINRA arbitrations to verdict involving FINRA registered brokers and broker-dealers.
Much of Fob’s work comes from other attorneys who refer him cases that are difficult and often require dedicated focus over several years.
Fob takes special pride in taking cases that other law firms have turned down and helped those families get the justice and accountability that they deserve.
